BRGY. TAPI, Kabankalan City - A burst of gunfire was heard after the Philippine National Police rendered a 21-gun salute during the burial of Police Officer Joe Harry Peralta at noon yesterday in Brgy. Tapi, Kabankalan City.
The source of the gunfire, however, had not yet been established, as of press time, and is being investigated.
Chief Supt. Conrado Capa, Negros Island Region police director, admitted that he heard of it. “I will look into that”, Capa said, although he did not mind it initially, as he was emotional during the burial of Peralta.
